report this is your chance to address us. i have several cards >> (calling names). >> thank you for having - allowing me to talk i'm david i'm a native san franciscan. i live with my family in effort hills a i have a b.a. from pennsylvania. my father was a ph.d. chemist and i helped to build the two family business in navel testing in 43 and a animal feed founded in 19051. we commenceed operation july 1st and 1998 we bought vandyke and we bought vandyke and have and began renovating section a and it was completed in 2014. i'm speaking in opposition to a proposal that will be coming to you to create a homeless shelter on jennings street that is next to our navel laboratory. and we have mike traceers and micro biologists. we located on vandyke avenue because it was located for industry. when i decided to have it on the hill my father said it was unacceptable. someone could sue us. the 4r5ish9 used explosive chemicals. i've dmrutd a packet of information a listing of all the chemicals we have under our housing management plan dated july 2012. we've never had a sorrows judicious u i
resident. i'm here to talk about a rezoning project. this legislation will be for a special use district it will come from the mayor's office and the department of human services and will be designed to 2115 germans as housing. the idea hero is to use a $1 million grant to house homeless. this location was chosen hurriedly. the organization that hopes to get the shelter already has a restaurant adjacent and much of the community believes this was chosen to reduce the consolidation for that contract. i'm going to speak about a specific issue and that's seismic hazard. when the p dr map was designed a portion of the map related to discuss macro was fashioned on the zones. you can see on the left hand in green and on the right hand a map of p dr and the area was designed in part to useless those areas which are unsafe for housing. the planning department conducted a large and to her assessments and decided what doess. to keep the housing out. it would be disagrees to house one hundred indistrict folks. just because someone has a $100 million grant. people ask if a one hundred million dollar
and second floor training. we actually look at using the existing balcony that's there now. but we managed to keep a portion of that and part of that was so on the left-hand side 0 that's our nod to the - it's a element we were using a balcony as opposed to a bay window and on the right side we tend to deviate we wanted to have this transparent element but we wanted the entry to be prominent. we felt that having a typical retail store front and the typical two spore element would be too evenly closings it needed to be an open building >> i can appreciate that i'm wondering why there's we're having window treatment not entirely glasses sacrificed on the front of the building. >> our concept was to keep it open and trying to do the other would not achieve the same effect. >> thank you. i've seen a lot of buildings that don't have that much glaigdz it's just my opinion. >> so i'm also very supportive. i know the building i appreciate the design i think it's open and kind of gets people upstairs and a makes the active. just a question on the retail perhaps taking that and making that part
it was inappropriate with a sequa document and voted the 2010 conditional use. the city choose not to appeal that but the eir which you analyzed and the intense indication would have any impacts on the environment. the eir included it would not have any impacts nor litigation measures but the eir is recommending draft motions. in its 2013 motion the interpretation upheld the board of appeals termths that the masonic was constructed as a entertainment viewpoint not as a private lodge. there are some apparently that had mr. wallace is a private lodge and no entertainment should be held, however, it was revolved by the board of appeals and it upheld it and no is not prevented from convert the non conforming use to a conditional use. and it's determined by the board of appeals and the supreme courts. while the eir was to allow the begins to continue. earlier this year i'm pleased to announce to you we've reached a settlement and 9 individual neighbors who participated in the litigation against the city have agreed to a strike limit to 79 fire department's and only 54 of the event maybe music's c
of the station and this is one of the most commonly used systems in use right now mostly in north america developed by the city of montreal and also in use in london and melbou r.n. e and minnesota and boston san francisco bay area and soon to be in use in vancouver portland and seattle and so this system was designed in montreal to be seasonal so as a result it's a portable and modular system. what that means here we can deploy them quickly and easily without doing any excavation it simplifies deployment significantly they are battery powered using solar and as mentioned there's no excavation they are not even bolted down they are held down by their own considerable weight and the basic components consist of panels com prize -- there's a kiosk on there people that welcome up with a credit card and get a membership and one other i think one of the challenges i'll say so far the biggest challenge we've had and they have had this in other cities is communicating how the pricing for bicycle riding works so 2 tiers and in order to use this system you have to be a member so i'm an annual memb
us that. that is the same case. we're making an attractive venue for events. i certainly think they've worked extremely well, as was pointed out to the neighbors. we've got smaller clubs in the city like the feinstein's and, of course, venues such a davies and the opera house. but again those don't combine the food and drink experience expect on a limited use with the entertainment. i think we will attract more and better quality acts by moving moving forward. this is a historical arena >> commissioner wu. >> i wanted to ask staff the question. i'm trying to understand how does the su d act with flying zoning and section 132 b allow the use to happen >> it basically sets forth the conditional use for certain types uses eating and drinking and that's part of the request today. it didn't take place with anything that is not to deal with non-conforming uses. when you have a non-conforming use you can have during a certainty point of operation you can discontinue that use or seek the legalization for the use. that was the case in 2012 for the masonic approval or you can seek to chang
supplement their income slightly and pushes us along the path for more sustainable food sources at a small level. supervisor chiu has long been interested in these issues. he carried a urban agricultural legislation in 2011 and looks forward to carrying further ag legislation when additional state law changes in the near future. the legislation also makes two changes related to accessory uses more generally. accessory uses essentially -- the secondary use, aside from whatever the primary and essential use of a particular site s in a residential situation, the accessory use in this instance would be cottage food. the other two general accessory use changes are extending the floor area allowed from quarter to a third. this is planning department's estimation of what is a more reasonable amount. particularly with cottage food, there was consideration of exempting the kitchen or having half the kitchen count. instead to make it cleaner and easier to enforce they're going with this recommendation of a third, a third of the square footage. and additionally right now, accessory use [speaker not u
to the san francisco board of supervisor's land use and economic development. i'm scott wiener and supervisor david chiu will be joining us shortly our clerk is lisa miller i want to thank sf tv. miss miller are there any announcements? >> items acted to know today will appear on the november 19th board of supervisor's agenda unless otherwise stated. >> thank you madam clerk can you start by calling item number 2? >> extend existing roadway. >> okay john from the department of public works. good afternoon. the department received a request from an applicant to reconstruct that portion to install a privately maintained drive way that will lead to his new garage. at that point the applicant was not ready he was working with neighbors and they are now currently ready and that's why this application is in front of the full board with recommendations for full approval. >> colleagues if there's no questions or comment we'll open it up to public comment. is there any public comment on item number 2? okay seeing none public comments is closed. colleagues do i have a motion to forwa
i think there needs to be more awareness of how medical cannibalis is used and the neighborhoods. it's really limited. but my hope is that the committee could have time to look at this carefully, with stake hold groups raising awareness and raising awareness of medical cannibalis, and not just the health qualities of medical cannibalis. that's my concern. and it's important to give our planning department and commission enough time. i hope that the medical cannibalis task force is involved in this as well. i think there is lumping of medical marijuana with liquors and gambling as well. and it could lead to less understanding than more, i hope that you consider this as it moves forward. >> supervisor campos. >> thank you, i want to thank the supervisor and his staff and all the work in this item. and i know that all the members of the community, not just from this district, but other parts of the city. from within the cannibalis community that have opined this. i will be supporting item 23, and item 24. i do want to note that, i think there are differences between these two items.
back. >> thank you for this report. i like the service availability map. i think it's going to help us inform the previous process that we were just talking about. i would like to hope that we could particularly emphasize that there has been efforts to deliberately provide service to places where it's most needed for people with disabilities and seniors. most people who are out to get us or hate us or forever reason wants us to fail, they'll fail. if i'm a wheelchair for a quarter of a mile, that's fine for you but not someone with a walker. it's important that we articulate that we say we're trying to deliver this service to four people with disabilities and we're addressing this concern as well. this is fantastic. thank you. >> thank you mr. flynn. we have a resolution. is there a motion on that? >> mr. chairman, the person who did want to address you have left but it appropriate to see if we have anyone. >> we have a resolution before you. is there a motion. >> second. >> all in favor say i. >> i. >> thank you very much. >> next item. >> it would be appropriate for you to ha
schools and keeping us abreast of the process you are going through. i'm speaking as a board member on behalf of the yerba buena alliance as community as guidance for the way forward for yerba buena's future. we really em implore that you use these principals for your consideration of yerba buena's future. a brief subscription of these principles that all these buildings remain so. and that any displacement of these uses should be prohibited. secondly that all sources and often we've seen them turn them over. these funds are legally to ensure they are used for that purpose. regarding the use and maintained by first class professional organizations are great on our mind. we also urge that you consider a dedicated single governing body to over see these diverse issues to lawsuits and project legal struggles. the purpose was to have no dominant use and to manage what was built there and have a diversity of uses. the urge sea of having a single opportunity to continue is very important. i want to conclude by just in endorsing john overruling's comments and to have a sense and openn
we are finding that it's useful because a lot of times there's a sense that the city's not doing enough to address homelessness, address crime, address those larger issues and so we have a point of contact and reference to work with, you know, on those larger issues. one of the things we also want to do is make sure we reach out to all communities so with the work of francis we're starting to reach out to the monolingual communities. >> [inaudible] enables us to work with pretty much most of the communities i think in the cross cultural situation. [inaudible] extends connection and establish network between merchants in the city. according to census 2010 chinese is one of the fastest growing population citywide.

sell or can we add use restrictions to the selling for the disposition in the property management plan? >> well, i think that the whole point of doing all this is the state, you know, wants to get as much money as possible. and yes, it's true in this case the state wouldn't get any money because of the the cdbg restrictions, but in other cases where we brought properties before them, they've focused on are you getting -- even when it's restricted revenue, are you getting as much money as possible, and if there's not a use restriction on it, i think it would be difficult to apply a new use restriction on it because the state would look at that as us trying to purposely reduce the value. >> i think i -- the reason i asked that question is because i feel the garage parcel adds to the value of the enter social center itself. so if it can be sold to someone who is doing rental on another lot nearby and they choose to buy that garage and then they say this is only for residents or for this particular use, but not necessarily for the heritage center, i think that would lower value of the com
1067 is in the same situation as 1049. there's a code violation against 1067 for illegal use of residential space but my fear is we could be looking something although i hope the landlord has learned >> who initiated the practice. >> i understand there was a call. the complaints start in 07. the owner evicted a tenant and then the tenant didn't pay the rent and then claimed to their department and started the process >> okay. thank you. what we'll do is go to public comment >> thank you perfect. >> first speaker mr. shaw. >> thank you randy shaw. i think this is the first time i've spoken to this commission in 8 years. i missed the vote for tom as the director but you've proven from the last week's events i commend the commission for the wise decision because we've already seen in the last two weeks is the collaborative leadership style so if we had a few ago a defy who knew everything but tom is working with the directors. to get to the essence of where this is going - and i appreciate president menacing the article implicit laid out the realty and the t
of location. for those of us who have second jobs, and i can't take my mom to the hospital all of the time, and the laguna hospital is right on the hill, and the public transportation, will only get you to the bottom of the hill, you have to go through flights of stairs in order to get up there, that is very hard for the dialysis patient to do and it is even tough for a normal person like me to go up there. and i am sure, that you can imagine how hard it is for the dialysis patients. >> second point, translator, like i said before, i can't be there to translate for my mom all of the time and on top of that, we are not professional translaters, and there are times when we need to rely on the translator to help us to get our points across. we are grateful that the clinic was able to provide one for us. i am not sure that laguna hospital can do that for us. and also, emergency has a lot of patients point out. and lastly, and the most important thing of all, san francisco general hospital, has the best medical team who really care about the well-being of the patients. and so why would we want
residential and commercial office uses. the current owner has actually begun some evictions and some people have accepted the relocation funding that the owners have offered. we spoke to the owners about a week ago and invited them back for one more effort to walk them through the steps that would enable them to legal lists the residential unit and keep people in the building. once we knew that certain fire safety and building safety issues had been addressed. they agreed yesterday to a walk through thought building which is golden going to take place tomorrow afternoon at the 8 o'clock. most of the staff that participated including our senior electrical chief and someone from the fire department and someone from planning and jeff from our plan review staff who has worked with people especially on using that administrative bullet. it's a local equality thing that allows us to address the light and air issues that the code has specific requirements on. so this give us a little bit more flexibility. we pointed out out to the owner if they want to do a preapplication he meeting for the designe
with us and we don't have the wherewithal to finish some 5,000 units, does that obligation at any point transfer to the successor housing agency to complete. >> we haven't gotten to that point. we just submitted our request to the state to establish the obligation with the state. that's before them now so that's step one is to have the state finally determine that there is a replacement housing obligation and then i think we go from there. >> got it. >> as a part of that determination, determining there is a statutory obligation, we need a /soeurs of funds so that's the funding stream so in those redevelopment plan areas where the program is complete, golden gateway, south beach, now there's ability after death service to be able to use the additional head room in that tax increment for this tax purpose so we've built approximately close to 1,000 today, but about 6,000 still exist, so it's the obligation and funding stream. if the city were to accept the obligation, it would have to identify a funding stream so it would be unwise for the city to accept the obligation without a sou
to be transferred to the city for governmental use that were /orpblly going to be sold in the open market and previous drafts, first one being building 218. originally the goal was to sell to private developer who would own and manage. tracy, can you just quickly discuss why the governmental use approach or transfer to the city approach is a better route? >> will, i think partly -- again, not arguing the governmental purpose. we're arguing kind of an enforceable obligation and we have an enforceable obligation that these were part of the community facilities broadly identified as community facilities in the phase two. we felt that was a stronger argument when we went back and looked again at the phase 2dda and the redevelopment plan which specifically kind of envisions that there are going to be these community facilities that have a public purpose. therefore they should -- we feel that's a strong argument to keep them in the city's -- transfer them to the city and artist studios and keeping the rents at cost. which the dda says rents can only be charged to cover expenses. and having the
and the incredible advocacy and teaching that you do for all of us to ensure we are serving the community to the best of our ability. now we have one of our best supervisors jane kim. >> base guitarist. my first show was at the shop many years ago. speaking about the arts in the 2000 i cofounded a space here in san francisco in south of market. i remember having a performance arts space, we moved three times in 6 years and finding spaces to support them was in incredibly challenging during that time. we were eventually able to share spaces through other arts organizations, but i do remember how important permanent physical space was. that's why it's so exciting to be here 13 years later to celebrate the acquisition of two very important buildings here in the tenderloin and mid-market for two organizations that have held strong in the mid-market area for a long time and that's leading and -- luggage store gallery, i want to recognize mr. smith and jessica from counter paul. it's so fun to be able to kind of switch roles as our arts community grows. i remember going to the intersection of the arts and
driving a vehicle equipped for use by hand control. part of what we need to make you clear of is description of the problem, then the process we went through, our recommendations and next steps. we want to increase access to parking for people with disabilities, as well as decrease the parking placard abuse or misuse. in gentleman is driving a vehicle equipped with hand controls, has the placard. his problem is not his limitations or his disable. his problem is finding a parking space. people who have disabilities, we can't find the parking we need when we need it close to our destination. that's because current parking policies and state legislation failed to increase access to convenient parking for people with disabilities. in context, the california state law is very, very broad and maybe even outdated. a person displaying a placard has the right to park for any unlimited amount of time without any payment at any green zone that you merchants pay for. we'll address some of that in our recommendations. now on the screen you'll see a list of the stakeholders. the na
on the translator to help us to get our points across. we are grateful that the clinic was able to provide one for us. i am not sure that laguna hospital can do that for us. and also, emergency has a lot of patients point out. and lastly, and the most important thing of all, san francisco general hospital, has the best medical team who really care about the well-being of the patients. and so why would we want to change that? i am not saying that the medical staff in laguna hospital is bad, since i would not know. but based on my experience, and in a for profit organization, almost done. >> the medical staff to become expensive, and the medical staff care about the patients they do not even have the time to care about them because they have to take care of so many patients with the minimum staff. >> the medical staff are not happy. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. >> next speaker, please? >> my name is william and i am a dialysis patient. and i am out-patient and i don't know about money or politics, but you see when i came out there to the institution, i am on dialysis. and now, if if i

hours in any effect >> okay. thank you. >> director. >> could you give us american people update on this. can you regularly gives an yucht parallel the community to keep us informed. it's important agriculture all the stakeholders and the community is addressed. i personally would love to get an update >> yes. absolutely we'll keep you updated. >> i have a quick question. we're rushing towards a date to approve something. can we talk about what the form of the final property management plan. i feel like the memo are discrepancies of that and what is the property management plan itself and how detailed is the strategy in terms of what persons or offices of the city are property is going to transfer to the processes >> through the chair the actual form of the property management plan and the data that's prescribed there's some information that's required and that's what the real estate division is populating just some facts about the property the blocks and lots. and then we must designate of those 4 categories for deposition. we need to designate we don't need to designate a p
that service area? i'll get to that later i'll talk a little bit about some early use if that's all right these are interesting and exciting numbers. i just want to grab my notes really quickly. >> so this shows trips from mid-august through last week i wasn't able to chart the latest data. overall san francisco trips the blue line peaks out at almost 12 hundred trips we're averaging somewhere between 900 and 1000 trips a day healthy use translates into 2.5 trips per day per bicycle which is a number we're happy with and the blue shaded region represents that's trips by annual members. and then the green line below represents trips by casual members. you can see where the green bar and the lowest valleys are on both of the blue graphs that's weekends and you can see that the casual usage is higher generally on the weekend where as the annual members and overall really peaks midweek. >> why do you think that is and some of the casual users people enjoying their weekends. >> certainly. >> why are they most likely to rise during the week? >> i think a lot of commute trips but there's mor
professionals coming up wore standing on the shoulder of other projects that have come before us like good neighborhood that have laid the foundation to continue the food justice work and the model we follow. we also want to thank the community. we wish all the babies would be in this room. we hunger for healthy food and our community is behind supporting those stories. we appreciate being hero in this moment to recognize that every honor we get at food guardians it's for our deeply rooted partnerships with the community. withhold to honor the fact our work is funded by kaiser permanent at the and it takes time to sort out the injustice. we want to thank the department of health. we wouldn't have access of the acknowledge and training and training people in the community to come up as young professionals and be a model for the community. we want to thank our associates that helped to train us to move the shelving unit and how to influence the store items to stock healthier items that produce is profitable. we want to thank all the organizations basically, the kernel and the seed for helpin
because open data has helped us spark innovative and fuel further economic development, it has potential and we've seen the largest positive impacts happening at the city level. here at the local level, we have a unique opportunity to reevent and reimagine the opportunity we can have between our city residents and government, we've seen open data used in practice already and we can see how it can accomplish all of the positive benefits i mentioned, whether it's to help publish health scores on their website, helping residents making healthier choice, or make sf rec park to help people make picnic reservations or using your smart phone, all the examples i just mentioned are real examples of how open data can improve the lives of our city resident, further fuel economic growth here in san francisco. specifically, this ordinance will enumerate open data numerical standards, it creates a sense of accountability and certain for the public and entrepreneurial community, it creates city staff and agencies to interact with the public about relevant data set and is the priority of certain data se
of the land use committee. this week at the meeting there was an unanimous vote to repel the larkin. the land use chair made a remark about the fiscal sponsor. a cry went out like a spontaneous cry of disgust because neighborhood associations don't do this and this is the end of our land use process. instead of macro decisions on sequa it's based on who put out their hand and accepted money and said it's for community benefit, you know. actually a representative from the mta very eloquently said after that, the unanimous vote was taken to oppose the vote. now i want to say that is rather disappointing and there's a reason for that. when you decide that you're going to pay attention to some little group rather than the community at large you crush the public process. in that district of chinese project owners the wonsz ones who are reached are reached by the 3 china's properties that are involved in that. and after the decision, you know, one can't even be contacted who was the one who was talking to her neighborhood. in the case of 11 latino heritage there were 9 members of the knob hill asso
for us. where we did the right thing many, many years ago. one of the deputies said they might have had meetings last year and the owner was given the same information. so i'm a little bit concerned about how this played out and the train has left the station. a lot of the tenants have decided to leave. i'm afraid we're in a situation where the owner is saying well, this is the eviction notices are out. i kind of want to go public and i know we visited smoking gun someone from the rent board >> i had no response. >> yeah, but there are people from the building so we'll hear from them and randy was the - there was only one piece of paper that addressed the issue. the real big thing is we've got to get our side of the story out there. because as a stand i identification talking to a few people and you're starting to evict artists it's so frustrating to hear that. this is a very big and important situation we've got to correct this and do what we. so as a commissioner we're all on board to do whatever it takes to work you with you. and the directors and deputy directors have laid out the
but do you want to update us >> give me one second we'll use the proper formality here. >> sorry and it's best that all the commissioners get their questions out. >> so i think staff has begun above and beyond and i'm so glad that, you know, we have been perceived as the problem solving staff. so my worry was about the messaging and the media because it was a thing oh, we're evicting all these tenants because of dbis rules. that's not the case. in that part of the story was not out there. it feeds that perception among folks considering whether they're going to swastika in or not. i'm wondering if we have a strategy foretelling the story of what happened here. and have this sort of be a template for other folks who could, you know, bring their buildings up to snuff and provide affordable housing >> good morning commissioner. i'm tom huey director of the building inspection and first of all, regarding those jobs we asked the owner since april this. first of all, we never charged them a penny. even yesterday the meeting the inspection coming up on, you know, we want to be resolving the
of supervisors file number 130781, special finance taxing law. we have with us >> thank you for having us here today. i welcome the opportunity to talk to you about the mandatory soft story retro fit program. the ordinance that you see before you, what i wanted to do was explain about what we're working on here that will be at the board right now. to give you some context i think some of you may be familiar with the requirements of the soft story ordinance, but to give you an idea of what the requirements entail, it's looking at the building stocks that we saw significant damage in after the loma earth quake. we've noticed an issue for years and have been trying to deal with this in a comprehensive way that the conducive to the property owners and small businesses that are in them. we think this affects roughly 6,000 businesses that have been -- 6,000 buildings that have been noticed and about half would be required to retro fit. about 7,000 local employees. we've seen from other devastating earthquakes around the world that these small businesses are is most venerable businesses and if the
